They apparently had keen night vision and were warm-blooded, enabling them to forage for food during long winter nights, at freezing or sub-freezing temperatures. The combination of these two meteorological phenomena is likely to be beneficial for conservation and growth of permafrost. In the 20th cent., commercial interest shifted to baleen whales.

Known as B-15, the iceberg was approximately the size of Connecticut—it weighed about 2 billion tons and measured some 4,250 sq mi (11,007 sq km) before breaking up into five smaller sections. The most striking fact about the Antarctic continent is its almost complete glaciation. Recent shift s in the global climate, while not proven to be caused by humans, by 2006 conformed to a prevailing scientific view: without significant changes in emissions rates, global warming from the buildup of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is likely to lead to substantial, and largely irreversible, transformations of climate, ecosystems, and coastlines later in the 21st century.

In addition, hundreds of millions of people live in areas that will become increasingly vulnerable to flooding. Going by the fact that temperature drops with the rise in altitude, it is bound to be cold on this continent. The general aridity (low precipitation) of this area, however, is correct. During 1935, Ellsworth had returned south and set up camp at Dundee Island near the Antarctic Peninsula’s tip. There was ongoing ship and submarine activity in the South Atlantic and polar regions throughout and after the war had apparently ended.
